The elite Chicago school, worth $40,000 a year, which was recently revealed to have students as young as 14 discussing sex toys, also has ‘affinity groups’ that prohibit white children from attending.
The Francis W. Parker school has come under fire after Dean Joseph Bruno, 41, told an undercover reporter from the conservative news site Project Veritas that the school aims to teach students at the school Francis W. Parker all about gay sex.
There’s more to the activities of the “progressive” school, including affinity groups for children as young as four years old.
The school’s website states: “Affinity groups are spaces for students with similar identities to come together in an adult-facilitated space to discuss their experiences and explore their identities…it’s a space where children can see themselves and their experiences reflected in their peers.’
Children from preschool can participate in the groups, however, white students are not welcome.

The site itself advertises, “SOCA is open to all K-5 students who identify as students of color and wish to participate.”
As for white students – or, as the site puts it, “students who identify as white” – they say, “SOCA groups are only open to students of color, through a direct and intentional programming in the elementary and middle school curriculum. , all students have the opportunity to reflect on their own racial identity and how it plays into their greater sense of self.
They add, “While the development of white identity is absolutely important to a child’s development, we know that there are a number of factors in the process of racial identity development for young children of color. who can benefit from direct programming in a different way than white people. students.’
Parents Defending Education president Nicki Neily told Fox News in a statement that the school “separates students by race” and “immoral.”
She said: “Rather than teaching innocent little children to be nice to everyone, authority figures they and their parents trust instead teach students to see all human interactions through the prism of skin color. The administrators of Francis Parker should be ashamed of themselves – and the families should make their displeasure known so that this programming can be ended.
It comes after Bruno was filmed by Project Veritas describing the school’s sex ed curriculum.
“During Pride – we have Pride week every year – I had like our LGBTQ+ health center. They were passing out butt plugs and dildos to my students – talking about queer sex, using lube instead of the spit”, says Bruno.
He also revealed that a drag queen was invited into the classroom, who took pictures with the children and handed out cookies.
The video, shared on Project Veritas’ Twitter account, which has one million followers, has been viewed more than 3.5 million times.
During the conversation, Bruno, who served as Dean of Students for four years according to the video, describes how up close and personal the students are with the objects.
‘Kids just play with them, watch them… They’re like, ‘How does this butt plug work? How do we do – like, how does it work? It’s a really cool part of my job,” he says.
When the man filming asks if everyone is “okay” with it and if he’s had any complaints, Bruno simply replies no.
And when the Project Veritas reporter asks if parents – who pay a $40,000 fee to send their children to school – might be worried if they find out, he replies: “No, it’s sex. queer”.
The man also mentions that during Pride week, the school invited guests, including drag queen Alexis Bevins, to “hang out” with students.
According to school officials who spoke with DailyMail.com, the video was taken without Bruno’s approval and edited with ‘malicious intent’
Bruno says the students, aged 14 to 18, are able to get close to objects such as butt plugs and dildos while discussing queer sex, and are allowed to ask questions about how things work.
“We brought in a drag queen, handed out cookies and brownies, and took pictures,” says Bruno.
The Project Veritas member goes on to say, “You have so much freedom, so much leeway – to which Bruno responds, “So much freedom. So much money to do things.
When asked if the administrators agreed, Bruno claimed that he did not tell other administrators at the school about the sex objects shown to students.
“They don’t know,” says Bruno.

I wouldn’t even like them to run it. Like, why would I run by them? They’d be like, ‘Oh my God, that’s wonderful,’ he continues.
